Both ancient cultures and contemporary potters have used low-firing to great effect, adding slips and burnishing pieces to create finishes not possible with any other firing method. This lovely little multi-coloured vase was created by an accomplished Canadian potter. The vase is 6 1/4" tall and approximately 3 1/2" at its widest. This one-of-a-kind piece is a delightful gift - pleasing to the touch and to the eye.
The Artist/Designer: Natalie Prevost is an award-winning clay artist with a passion for primitive smoke-fired work. A native from a small French community close to Ottawa, Ontario Canada Natalie Prevost started playing in mud long before being a clay artist. She now lives in Paris, Ontario, Canada where she has been teaching others the art of pottery, as well as Raku for 18 years. In 2007, one of her pieces was chosen as a gift for Prince Andrew, Duke of York on his visit to Canada. “I love what I do… To keep my work fresh with shape and design I look to nature. It answers any questions I might have. I picked this art form for many reasons, one of which is having fire respond directly to the vessels and letting the earth, air, fire, and water speak for itself.”
